Even though the view on this hike is one of the most spectacular views you’ll ever get, it’s still one of the most treacherous hikes. Because it’s so dangerous, the government closed the trail and made it illegal to climb. But that doesn’t stop the bravest souls from attempting to climb to the peak. It’s also known as the Stairway to Heaven and is a 2,000-foot trail that takes trekkers up 3,922 steps to the top. It was originally built so the US Coast Guard could have a secret radio antenna at the top during World War II (iexplore).
